Audi Sport Quattro concept

The Audi Sport Quattro is to make its official debut during the Frankfurt Motor Show, only a few days away. The automaker has now revealed the revised concept.

Looking back in time, we notice that the Audi Sport Quattro had quite an uncertain future. The concept was  first introduced in 1984 and shortly abandoned afterwards. Later, in 2010, rumors had it that it will soon go under production, but this never happened. Now, the manufacturer has adjusted and improved the initial concept, and is ready to showcase it during the IAA.

The auto is powered by a 4.0 liter twin turbo V8 TFSI engine which generates 560 HP (412 kW) and 700 Nm (516 lb-ft) of torque. The twin turbo engine works alongside with an electric motor positioned between the eight-speed tiptronic  gearbox and the V8 mill. The electric motor is based on energy from a liquid cooled lithium-ion battery installed in the back side, with a capacity of 14.1 kWh. This electric motor generates 150 HP (110 kW) and 400 Nm (295 lb-ft). The car outputs a combined  700 HP (515 kW) and 800 Nm (590 lb-ft).

The Audi Sport Quattro concept can travel on electric power  up to 50 Km (31 miles) gives a CO2 emission of 59 g/ Km and has an average fuel consumption of 2.5 liters/ 100 Km. Also, it can reach 0-100 Km/ h in only 3.7 seconds.

The revised concept features redesigned 21 inch alloy wheels shod in 285/30 R1 tires, larger sized exhaust pipes, rather aggressive LED headlights  and redesigned taillights untied by a red bar. The features that the manufacturer decided to keep are the hexagonal front grille and the same air outlet located on the right side of the bonnet.

Audi Sport Quattro concept has 4602 mm in length, an 1386 mm height and brings a trunk capacity of 300 liters.
